Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami? Contrary to what the title might make you think, this is not a culinary affair, but a film festival with the aim of promoting the wildest and most intriguing productions of Asian pop culture. Back this year for its 12th edition, and with a long-awaited inclusion of Asian animation. There will be a section focused on Japanese Anime along with a selection of Chinese and other Asian creations. Although animations are usually associated with children's' tales, anime covers subjects that are more geared towards adults. Filled with subjects like politics, social issues, and violence, they mimic modern films more than the happy tales of your youth. Five Flavours is the only annual film festival in Poland to present cinema from East, South-East and South Asia. For eleven consecutive years, the Festival has brought to Poland premiere screenings of the latest and most appealing productions from the Far East as well as classic Asian films and retrospectives of renowned filmmakers.
